Open Date: January 2022

The first new leisure centre to be built in Dudley in more than 30 years has opened to the public this month.

The new Duncan Edwards leisure centre is located in Flood Street, Dudley, approximately one mile from the previous centre and occupies part of a council owned car park. It includes: a 25 metre, 8-lane swimming pool; a teaching pool with spectator provision; sauna; a 4-court sports hall; a 100 station fitness suite; two group exercise studios; an immersive cycle studio; a soft play area with catering facilities and a party room; a café; a sauna and a power assisted exercise studio.

All works were delivered via the UK Leisure Framework, managed by Denbighshire Leisure.

During the development ISG, the appointed construction team, received outstanding marks as part of the Considerate Constructors Scheme for their practices.

The centre is named in honour of the borough’s most famous sporting son, former England and Manchester United player, Duncan Edwards, who was born and raised in the town

We are beginning a new era in our leisure offer, this building is exceptional and is complemented by the major redevelopments of Halesowen and Crystal leisure centres. I would like to thank everyone who has played a part in creating this new facility. It's something for us all to be proud of and shows the regeneration of Dudley is moving in the right direction. It's now over to the public to try the centre out for themselves and see why we're so excited to finally open its doors.
Councillor Simon Phipps
Cabinet Member responsible for Leisure
We are delighted to see this brand new facility come to life with an inclusive mix of facilities and services that meet local strategic outcomes and the needs of the community. Along with our work at Halesowen and Crystal leisure centres, these new and regenerated centres will dramatically improve the quality of sport and physical activity provision in Dudley to help encourage more people to adopt healthy lifestyles.
